We'll Be in Red

The street party of all Vancouver street parties is coming to Commercial Drive this Saturday, October 25th. The Parade of Lost Souls will overflow the Drive from 1st to Venables, filling the air with mysterious, whimsical dark. The festivities begin around sunset and last well into the night. Watch out for the Carnival Band as we cook up our magic with samba dancers, fire spinners, and you!

Artists Come Out for Vision

A group of eclectic artists added their energy to the Vision Vancouver campaign launch yesterday, and hit the front page of 24 Hours today. Hula-hoopers, contact jugglers, and of course the Carnival Band added a dose of celebration to this group of politicians and supporters.

Led by Gregor Robertson, Vision Vancouver promises an end to homelessness, the growth of a green economy, and an investment in creativity. The party has forged an alliance with COPE to avoid splitting the progressive vote and unseat the NPA.

Parade of Lost Souls

The Carnival Band has again been invited to perform at the annual Public Dreams event, Parade of Lost Souls. This night of darkness and wonder is a "lively commemoration of the cycle of life and death, and of facing fears in order to live life to its fullest". The audience are the performers in this uniquely Commercial Drive tradition.

Parade of Lost souls will be held around Grandview Park, starting at 6:30 on the evening of October 25th. This year, the Carnival Band is collaborating with it's new dance troupe for an especially spectacular performance. Wear your most ghastly things, and join us in the fun.
